Do you remember as a kid the giddiness of getting a balloon? How you tied it to your wrist and watched it bob in the air above you. What about the amazement of walking into a birthday party and seeing a balloon bouquet behind the cake. All the colors and ribbons. Or the magic of a balloon animal at the fair? How deftly the artist was able to twist and knot simple balloons into such incredible shapes. Yet somehow along the way, balloons became a decoration of the past. Instead, decorators started opting for streamer walls, pop-up photo booths, and theme backdrops.
Well folks, balloons are back! And they are making quite a scene! Balloon garlands are all the rage! Whether it is for a birthday party, retirement celebration, baby shower, or corporate event, a balloon garland jazzes up any kind of gathering. In the age of 2020, we are no longer subject to choosing between primary colors and tired saying printed across metallic balloons. We have come a long way. Balloons nowadays are painted with all the colors of the wind and can be 100% customizable. The possibilities are endless.
Recently, Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington D.C. held their annual gala at The InterContinental Washington D.C.. With over 500 guests, this was quite an event. Something Fabulous, the event planner, showed off this great balloon insurgence with a fabulous balloon wall. Yes, a balloon wall! What better way to highlight such great merch than to have it interspersed within a display wall outfitted with all kinds of balloons? With balloons ranging from hot pink, balck and white striped, gold, polka dot, small, large, and in between, this balloon wall had it all. They even had gold balloons spelling out “PPMW Pop Up!” So when you are wondering how to make your next event decorations pop, give balloons another shot.
